Isotonix® Calcium Plus

Calcium is essential for building and maintaining strong bones. Isotonix® Calcium Plus provides the body with an optimal blend of calcium, vitamin D3, magnesium, vitamin C and boron in an efficient isotonic solution that is readily absorbed by the body. Isotonix dietary supplements are a replica of the body's own fluids, such as tears, plasma and breast milk. All fluids in the human body have a certain concentration, which is called the osmotic pressure. The body's common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent maintenance of all body tissues. In order for a substance to be used in the body's metabolism, it must be changed to the isotonic state.*

 

The efficiency of absorption is also affected by the digestive system. All substances that are used in the stomach go through a degradation process (breakdown) before they can be passed through the opening from the stomach to the small intestine to allow absorption. The digestive process can cause substances to lose some nutritive value, and this whole process takes time!

 

The secret of the isotonic process is probably now becoming clear! When an isotonic substance enters the body, it will be absorbed into the bloodstream rapidly. With isotonic fluids, little nutritive value is lost making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient. There is nothing artificial about it. An isotonic fluid is nature's own nutrient delivery system.

 

Isotonix Calcium Plus paves the way for powerful results since it is in an isotonic form rather than a tablet. Calcium in tablet form is difficult for your body to absorb. People may fail to absorb tablet calcium supplements because the calcium supplement is not blended with vitamin D and magnesium; these are necessary to aid in the absorption and use of calcium. 

 

Even if the calcium tablet is blended correctly, it may be difficult for the body to utilize or break down the calcium. One explanation may be that many calcium brands use calcium from eggshell or oyster shell. These may not be well absorbed by the body. Another reason calcium may not be absorbed from a tablet is because of DCP, which is a binding agent used to hold the tablet together. DCP does not break down in the body.

  

In addition to binders, some calcium supplements may have additives such as chlorine and other chemicals. Even assuming no binders are used in the calcium tablet, the body must still break down a hard-pressed tablet into a usable form. If the tablet cannot be broken down sufficiently in the stomach, then the calcium will not be absorbed. If you can't break down the calcium, your body is robbed of the calcium needed to support bodily functions.

 

Ordinary calcium tablets require stomach acid to dissolve their compounds, but Isotonix Calcium Plus has no need of stomach acid to be utilized. It delivers an efficient calcium solution that is more readily absorbed by the intestine. Its natural lemon-lime flavor is preferable to the chalky taste of typical chewable calcium wafers or tablets.

Many calcium supplements exist in the marketplace, but only Market America's Isotonix Calcium Plus delivers a potent package of calcium and complementary nutrients through an isotonic system of delivery. This translates into a lower cost overall when compared to calcium supplements in pill form by making more of the active ingredients available to the body. Don't be misled by ingredient amounts. What really counts is the amount of active ingredients that your body can ultimately use.

FAQ

How much calcium should I take?

The National Academy of Sciences has established guidelines for calcium that are 25-50% higher than previous recommendations. For ages 20 to 50, calcium consumption is recommended to be at least 1,000 mg daily; for adults over age 51, the recommendation is 1,200 mg daily. The most common supplemental amount for adults is 800 to 1,000 mg per day. Some physicians recommend 1,000 milligrams of supplement calcium daily for postmenopausal women taking estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) and 1,500 milligrams daily for postmenopausal women not taking ERT. Everyone should be getting appropriate calcium intake. The Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences has recommended the following adequate intakes (AI) for calcium. Examine the table provided in order to determine appropriate calcium intake requirements:

I'm not an elderly woman. Why should I take a calcium supplement?

Calcium plays a huge role in regulating many major bodily processes with implications that extend far beyond the age factor. Other than elderly women who may be susceptible to bone loss, younger women, pregnant and lactating women, growing children and men should take a calcium supplement.

 

Younger women need more calcium to build up the strength of their bones. Pregnant and lactating women need extra calcium, at least 1200 mg/day to foster the healthy growth of new cells and of breast milk. Growing children need extra calcium, sometimes two to four times as much as an adult to assist with new bone development and proper growth. Finally, those with poor cardiovascular health have been found to have low levels of calcium intake. Studies have confirmed that calcium supplementation supports heart health.*

 

Why should I take calcium?

According to the Surgeon General, taking a calcium supplement daily is key to preventing and treating calcium deficiency and to helping reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Currently, osteoporosis affects over one-third of postmenopausal women in this country. Recent clinical statistics also indicate that aging men are also likely to become susceptible to osteoporosis.* 

 

Everyone needs calcium. Practically no one ingests enough calcium in their daily diet. Besides being helpful in supporting and maintaining bone integrity, calcium serves a dynamic role as a mineral. It's very important in supporting the activity of many bodily enzymes and maintaining proper fluid balance. Isotonix Calcium Plus also promotes the normal contraction of skeletal and muscle.  

 

I've heard calcium is great for PMS? How so?

PMS is an undesirable influence on physical and psychological peace of mind. Recent studies have found that over 70 percent of relationships are affected in some way by PMS. So PMS impacts nearly everyone, including men! Supplementation with calcium can reduce PMS symptoms.

 

In a study conducted by the US Department of Agriculture's Human Nutrition Research Center, it was found that women on a high calcium diet had decreased irritability, cramping and bloating associated with PMS. Ovarian hormones affect calcium, magnesium and vitamin D metabolism. Estrogen regulates calcium metabolism, intestinal calcium absorption and parathyroid gene expression and secretion, triggering fluctuations across the menstrual cycle. As a woman menstruates, her hormones are "all over the place." Clinical trials in women with PMS have found that calcium supplementation helps reduce mood and somatic symptoms associated with PMS.*  

 

What is the suggested age to begin taking Isotonix® Calcium Plus?

Isotonix Calcium Plus is recommended for all adults age 18 or older.

 

If we only absorb 300 to 400 mg of calcium at a time, why does one capful contain 750 mg?

There are 750 mg of calcium in 2 capfuls of Isotonix Calcium Plus. Therefore, one capful equals 375 mg of calcium.

 

Why is Isotonix Calcium Plus better than other calcium products?

It is better because of the Isotonix delivery system. The secret of the isotonic process is probably now becoming clear! When an isotonic substance enters the body, it will be absorbed into the bloodstream rapidly. With isotonic fluids, little nutritive value is lost making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient. There is nothing artificial about it. An isotonic fluid is nature's own nutrient delivery system.

 

Why is there a sandy residue left in the cup after mixing with water?
Everyone's water is different; some tap water has a higher concentration of minerals and the pH level of water differs depending on geographic location and the quality of the tap water, which can lead to inconsistencies with the saturation point of a solution. To ensure that our solutions reach the point of saturation, regardless of the pH or mineral levels in water, we have maximized the formulation amounts so that every serving of Isotonix Calcium Plus contains the correct amount of calcium. The residue left in the cup is due to over-saturation which is common in tap water with a higher pH level or a higher mineral content.

 

What form of calcium should I take?
The best form of calcium is calcium carbonate which is utilized by the body more efficiently, due to the fact that it increases the absorbability. Additionally, calcium is more readily absorbed by the body when in combination with magnesium, manganese, vitamin C, vitamin B2, boron and potassium. Isotonix Calcium Plus is formulated with calcium carbonate and the additional vitamins and minerals needed in an isotonic form which allows for maximum utilization and absorption of calcium by the body and reduces the nutritive loss found in many calcium tablets or capsules.

Tastes great and so I take it

By Joan the diver

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about Isotonix® Calcium Plus:

I never could choke down the normal, chalky horse-size calcium pills and the chewables always tasted "off" to me. So i avoided taking calcium supplements. My first bone density test showed this was a mistake for someone my age. I LOVE the taste of the Isotonic calcium so I rarely forget to take it. I will anticipate my next bone density test to see how much better I do!

Comments about Isotonix® Calcium Plus:

Feb.9,2012 I've been taking this for a little over 3 years now. I liked the taste better when I first started taking it--I think the company has changed some of the ingredients and wish they would go back to the formula they were using 3 years ago. It is good that it gets into the system quicker than a pill variety.
